The first monologue from Conan O'Brien's new show, "Conan," appeared on Variety Monday night. If any viewers out there wonder what O'Brien's new show is going to be like, the monologue offers some insight into what kind of silliness he has in store.

And yes, there are some jokes about NBC.

Some samples from the monologue as found at Variety are below:

"I'm happy to report that we're already no. 1 in TBS's key demographic, people who can't afford HBO. I'm going to be honest: It's not easy doing a late-night show on a channel without a lot of money and that viewers have trouble finding. So that's why I left NBC."

"A lot's happened in the news since I went off the air and I was hoping I could cover it all in one joke. But then I realized that's like trying to keep an Icelandic volcano from wearing Lady Gaga's meat dress while a trapped Chilean miner cleans up the BP oil spill…Brett Favre's penis."
